Norway has introduced a ban on entry into the country of cars with Russian license plates since October 3.
“Norway stands in solidarity with allies and like-minded people in opposing Russia’s brutal war of aggression,” said Foreign Minister Anniken Hutfeldt, quoted by Associated press.
These restrictions will affect cars with a capacity of up to nine passenger seats. At the same time, buses and minibuses with ten or more seats will still be able to cross the border at Storskog, which remains the only border crossing point between Norway and Russia.
The government in Oslo emphasizes that exceptions will be made for diplomatic vehicles, for cars owned by Norwegian citizens and members of their families permanently residing in Russia, as well as for trips necessary for humanitarian reasons, such as acute illness, death or family funerals
